Pours orange with a big thick head that eventually receded, but still good lacing.

A lot of floral aromas with a touch of citrus and some funk. Not a ton going on in the nose.

A little bit of a cracker malt sweetness up front in the palate. A little funky earthiness and way too much pepper then creep in before finishing somewhat spicy from floral hoppiness. Pepper is out of balance.

Decent mouthfeel. Medium bodied, probably a bit more than most saisons.

Meh have yet to be impressed by a Funkwerks beer. Nothing special here.

On tap at Rackhouse Pub and served to me in a snifter. Yellow orange color, soapy head, looks good. Smells very yeasty, overpowering. It also tastes very yeasty, I got a bit of bubblegum but none of the tropical fruits promised by the description and New Zealand hops. Overall I much preferred the regular saison.

750 mL bottle poured into a plastic cup.

Appearance - Hazy golden orange with a big white head. Thick collar and a lot of surface wisping.

Smell - Yeasty with a slight stone fruitiness to it. Pale malt.

Taste - Very malty. Sweet doughy malts. Fruity again. Yeasty flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Slightly sweet with a medium body.

Overall - Decent flavors. Just a little rough.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance - burnt orange red, medium head with a nice fluff to it.

smell - bubblegum banana yeast, spices, malt, mango

taste - follows the smell with some hops, malt isnt as nice as it smelt, a bit bland.

mouthfeel - nice body and nice carbonation but was oddly a bit cloying

overall - like the name, like what theyre doing but this is not my favorite

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is wheaty malts, lemon and some tropical fruit with a little floral hops.

The flavor is wheaty, bready malts with some sweet tropical citrus fruits and a decent dry grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice saison. The fruity notes are interesting, but it's a tad on the sweet side for me.

I hear this one is the next in line to be bottled. Some will have difficulty distinguishing the beers they have on the market, but I think this one has the most character.

Slightly hazed light orange, dark gold pour. Nice billowing head, somewhat sticky. Off-white, but fairly bright.

Yeasty spice aroma, bubblegum and citrus. Pale malt backbone gives it a nudge to sweetness.

Tropical fruits are pounded by the yeast and spice. I get some mango and peach--May Pride perhaps. A bit tangy and 'fleshy'. The hops add a bit of a 'pinch' to go along with the spice and yeast. Being a hop head, I'd like to see more hops, which I also think would give this beer more of a specific personality. But what do i know, I just drink the stuff.

Crisp finish with underlying sweet bread. Good carbonation
